I first visited 2 weeks ago when there was no hot food on the menu but had homemade pork pie and a Mata Hari desert. The desert was particularly delicious served with warm toffee sauce and ice cream. It was difficult to chose the desert...More

A bit of a gem; a bit special. Excellent premises, only stayed for "tea and cake", but quality and service was tops, by an evidently totally dedicated team. The choice of teas is excellent, but very large pots, plus water, per customer!

The history surrounding Kitty's has made it unique, being set in a Victorian house, built by a retired sea captain circa 1840. The Captain commisioned local carpenters to put in place the wonderful panelled ceiling, removed from a ship which was broken up in nearby Palnackie Harbour. The origional panneled ceiling and walls, still survive to this day and I'm sure you'll agree the workmanship was second to none. Kitty is privilaged to own and run this small family buisness in such beautiful surroundings. And looks forward to welcoming you. OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK FROM EASTER WEEKEND TO BEGINING OF NOVEMBER.
